Nissan North America is recalling an estimated 56,766 model year 2013-2014 Murano vehicles.

The power steering hose clamp on the affected vehicles may not adequately secure the hose, allowing the hose to detach and leak power steering fluid.

If the power steering fluid leaks onto a heat source such as hot engine or exhaust components, there could be an increased risk of a fire.

Nissan will notify owners of the recalled Murano vehicles, and Nissan dealers will install a power steering high-pressure hose kit free of charge.

Vehicle owners with additional questions about this recall can contact Nissan customer service at (800) 647-7261.
